Hello everyone. I've been reading this forum for quite some time, but that's the first time I ask for guidance myself. This is great place btw, and I bet someone can point me some directions
I have got this Yashica Electro 35 CC. After some cleaning it is in really good condition now. I've changed the battery for new one and the meter seems to work fine. Well it's hard to check with that camera, because there's no information about chosen shutter speed. I can only notice at which aperture red diode starts to show overexposure (that would be 1/250) or underexposure (hopely 1/30). Checking against the sky or smth uniformly lit with other trustful camera, meter is quite accurate, maybe little off.
But when I cover the sensor completely, shutter opens for maybe maximum 2 sec. at the lowest ASA setting. I've read that it should go a lot slower, 15 seconds?
Everything under top plate look fine and working. Wires properly soldered, gears are clean, nothing wrong. I've checked what is under bottom plate. Solders and wires look good, I cleaned contacts of potentiometers.
Then I closed that thing, put a roll of fp4 and I'm gonna shoot it under different light conditions to see what I have.
Before going deeper or some resoldering I want to ask if maybe some of you guys knows some answers?
When I'll have time I'm gonna develop that film to see if the lens is worth the effort. The camera itself looks, feels and handles very well for my taste. Yet bit odd. No information about shutter speed annoys, and I would swap places of the focus and aperture rings
What do you think about that camera? Any clues about problem of my copy?
